Children's Fishing Derby a success May 28, 2012
The Veterans, Ladies Auxiliary and Staff from the VFW Post 9397 in Hampden would like to thank the many people from the local community for supporting this year's Children's Fishing Derby. May 12 turned out to be a great event, the weather cooperated as well as the biting fish. The parents and children spent a great morning at the VFW Post fishing on the banks of the Scantic River releasing and catching many fish.
A very special thank you goes out to the following local businesses without their support we could not have made this day so special: Village Food Mart, Hampden Sign Corporation, Grog Shoppe/Scantic Variety, Professional Cleaners, Hampden Lions Club and the honorary fishing chairman, our own selectman, Vinnie Villamaino, for measuring all the fish for the children.
Again, a sincere thank you from all the veterans at the VFW.
Commander Ken White and Adjutant Don Talbot
